Hi. I'm studying for my master's at UCL. My dissertation deadline is in September, so I guess the program "finishes" in September.

I heard the graduation ceremony is in January.

But my question is, when do you actually "graduate" (i.e. awarded a degree) with a master's degree? Is it September after you handed in the dissertation? October? January? Somewhere in between?

When you receive your results, you have technically graduated. Official graduation is when you have your ceremony.

My master's program finished September 20 last year, I received my results in November and had my ceremony in December.

For the purposes of moving on with your life, I would take confirmation of your grades as you graduating.
